Hello!

So I own a few of these lenses, but the 25mm lens didn't come with a PL mount adaptor, the focus gear or 80mm lens front.

 

I was wondering if anyone knew the easiest way to acquire all of these items? I checked out Duclos lenses, and the adaptor alone was over $600. I understand you get what you pay for but is there an cheaper way to do this to a good standard? 

 

Appreciate any advice you guys have. Thanks!

The Pound is weak at the moment, so it may be a good time for buying from the UK.
